Geometric Patterns have a long tradition dating back to early Antiquity. The heyday of using geometric patterns to create advanced compositions was during the era of the Islamic Enlightenment. The widespread use of everyday mathematics in the period also facilitated the increase of the competence of artists with high skills in abstracting visual content. Today, various methods are used to create such complex shapes faithful to their original representations.
In this presentation, I wish to make the connections, shrouded in the mist, between the past’s geometric art and the present’s generative art visible by utilising creative coding methods.
